K-Laser Class IV Laser TherapyK-Laser

It is very exciting to announce we have received our first Class IV laser the K-Laser. The K-Laser has Health Canada Approval as of June 2011. This Class IV laser is the strongest laser available in the health care field. Up to now we have been using and getting great results with Meditech’s Bioflex laser which is a Class 3b laser. We will continue to use these lasers and also use the Class IV laser.

What is the power of most laser therapy devices on the market?

Laser therapy devices are class III lasers or “cold” lasers. Their power ranges are in the range of 5 milliwatts to 500 milliwatts. The K-laser is a high-powered therapy device ranging upto 6000 milliwatts; however, the K-laser is power adjustable from 100 milliwatts to 6000 milliwatts allowing for a wide range of treatment protocols. This power and penetration of the K-Laser system is not attainable with cold laser devices.

How many laser sessions are necessary?

Usually ten to fifteen sessions are sufficient to achieve a treatment goal. These sessions may be scheduled at two to three times per week for short duration treatment, or one to two treatments per week with longer treatment protocols.

Are there any safety risks associated with Class IV laser therapy?

The Class IV high powered K-Laser is extremely safe provided it is applied by a K-Laser certified, properly trained professional. However, it is not used over the eyes due to the sensitivity of the retina; therefore, all patients wear protective safety glasses during the treatment.

Some patients tell that they feel heat even if they are treated with high power Laser emission. Is Laser Therapy based on thermal effects?

The primary mechanism of laser therapy is photobiomodulation. Thermal effects are one component of high power laser therapy; however the stimulation of cells and tissue repair is based on scientific research that has demonstrated positive physiological effects of infrared wavelengths on cellular organelles and electron chain molecules.

 June 6, 2011: The K-Laser gains Health Canada Approval

Health Canada is the Federal department responsible for helping Canadians maintain and improve their health, while respecting individual choices and circumstances. On June 6, 2011 the K-Laser gained Health Canada approval through the Therapeutic Products Directorate of the Medical Devices Bureau. This clears the sales of K-Lasers to Health Care Practitioners in Canada.
